Lexmark C540N Network Colour Laser Printer by Lexmark
I bought this printer in November and in April needed to buy a new Black cartridge, and now need to buy a new Magenta cartridge. Need these to get the printer to work at all, can't be avoided. So, although the printer did exactly what I expected and I was really happy with it, 6 months on I will have spent 53 x 2 on top of the purchase price just to get it working. Even checked how many BW pages we had output and it was less than 3/5 of what was stated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Enjoyable, 7 Jun 2009
I started this book two years ago, when I was ill and in no mood for reading, and only managed to read about 30 pages. As someone who usually reads gripping novels set in the present day, the cover suggested a boring, worthy novel. I started this book again a couple of weeks ago and have found it fascinating, in it's own way gripping, and unlike any other book I have read. I particularly liked the way each of the main characters narrated chapters of the book, and having parents who came to the UK in albeit the 60s, I can imagine how the expectations and realities of England ring true. Mainly what made this enjoyable was that the narration came from ALL for the main characters. Well… Read more
How to Solve Cryptic Crosswords by Kevin Skinner

I asked for this book for Christmas after reading reviews of similar books. Normally I am very enthusiastic about learning and then lose interest or concentration a few days later. I love this book. The answers are explained simply, with plenty of examples to work through. Also this book is relatively small, so there is no waffle. I am currently mid way through the second level crosswords and showing no sign of losing interest. It is very satisfying. In fact I have stopped asking for a lift from the station so I can get the bus and have more quiet time to go through this book. I would recommend this book without a doubt, and I believe the ratings given to this are justified.
